The Flour Cookbook is Here!

Flour Bakery in Cambridge was a celebratory place on Thursday night as fans of Joanne Chang gathered to check out the publication of her new book, Flour: Spectacular Recipes from Boston's Flour Bakery and Cafe. It was a pleasure to see the book in print. I was excited realize that I can now recreate the focaccia that is central to Flour's incredible sandwiches. The book also includes the recipe for one of my unlikely favorites: the vegan chocolate cake. In fact, one glance at the book made laugh at the range of recipes (and Flour treats) that are revealed in this book. We are talking Pop Tarts, banana bread, the granola bars. And the event included a reminder about the quality of the final results: piles of cookies, cakes, sandwiches and even Flour's perfect homemade Oreos were scattered throughout Flour in Cambridge, while Joanne Chang signed books. The cookbook is available at Amazon, and at Flour, of course. And, don't worry, I will write about more soon once I start cooking my way through it!
